Contemporary Christian rock band Remedy Drive is set to release their 10th studio album, Commodity, on September 23, 2014. The project is dedicated solely to the band's commitment to combat international human trafficking."This album is dedicated to the children being taken against their will and forced to fight as child soldiers or to sell their bodies in the red light districts around the world," David said in a press release, "It's also dedicated to the undercover operatives of The Exodus Road and the growing number of ordinary people who are joining forces to combat the sale of human beings. We hope these songs of freedom will add to the soundtrack of the resistance."
Commodity is being called their most "important project to date." It will feature 12 selections written or co-penned by group founder and frontman David Zach and was produced by Zach's brother, Philip Zach. The title-cut and debut single, a stirring anti-slavery anthem, recently spent seven weeks atop the BDS Christian Rock chart, marking the longest charting #1 rock hit in Remedy Drive's career.
The record as a whole was inspired by David's trips to Southeast Asia working alongside The Exodus Road, a nonprofit coalition fighting sex slavery through covert investigation and rescue. Commodity includes the songs "Dear Life," "Take Cover," "Love Is Our Weapon," and "When A Soul's Set Free," among others.
Remedy Drive founded in 1998 in Lincoln, Nebraska. They are currently located out of Nashville, Tennessee. The band is currently composed of lead vocalist David Zach, guitarist Dave Mohr, bassist Corey Horn, and drummer Tim Buell. They have recorded eight studio albums (five of them independent), one independent live album and two EPs.
